Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Gitomer brings you the very foundation of Napoleon Hill’s self-help legacy: his long-lost original notes, letters, and lectures - now compiled and edited for the modern listener.

Twenty years before the publication of his magnum opus Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill was an instructor, philosopher, and writer at the George Washington Institute in Chicago, where he taught courses in advertising and sales. These rare, never-before-seen lectures were thought to be lost to history. Until now.

Given exclusive access to the archives of the Napoleon Hill Foundation, Jeffrey Gitomer has unearthed Hill’s original course notes containing the fundamental beliefs in hard work and personal development that established Hill as a global leader of success and positive attitude.

In Truthful Living, Gitomer has captured Hill’s foundational wisdom for the twenty-first century. These easy-to-implement real-world strategies for life, family, business, and the bottom line prove as energizing and inspiring today as they were nearly one hundred years ago.

Not my style, but interesting

Not my style of writing, but it was interesting to go through. I’ve never completed any NH books because the concept always seemed too sensational for my tastes.
I know, I know... I haven’t embraced the glory! Sorry.

The boiled-down truths were good. The repeated admonitions to read and reread and memorize the book weren’t my favorite things to hear, but whatever.
Obviously, it’s helping people, and I enjoyed hearing from some of NH’s earliest writings. That was interesting to me.

Reading was super slow.
Concepts were just distillations of other concepts—mostly biblical.
Made sense. Wasn’t a top 10 book for me though, and it did not make me want to finish Think and Grow Rich.

Not A Classic

The writings of Napoleon Hill are almost hundred years old and it reads like it. The book identifies key factors for success like finish what you start, spend time on reflection, journal your thoughts, be confident, be sincere, etc. It is very simplistic. There is a part about the value of hard work and the point is illustrated with 'The Grasshopper and the Ants' of Aesop's Fables. It's not original or motivational. There isn't many nuggets of wisdom that would make this book a classic.

Not a great representation of Hill's work

I was bored by the repetitive style of writing. I love Napoleon Hill's but this book is basically a review of Hill's work. I am disappointed that I wasted a credit on this title.
